Old Tobacco Manufacture

Old Tobacco manufacture, 'La Friche' is a huge complex transformed since 1992 into a multicultural concept. 500 m from the train station, it is a space of research, of production and distribution (broadcasting), completely dedicated to the contemporary creation under all these forms: entertainment (theater, dance, exhibitions, street entertainments), visual and digital arts, music, cinema... A ground opened as much for the artists as for the public. the best radio in town 'Radio grenouille' is spreading his program from there and the concert venue 'cabaret aleatoire' welcome the best current DJs and bands.

A great restaurant serving nice elaborated meals and a cyberspot is dedicated to everyone. The balance is widely positive: 180 international partnerships, 500 events annually, 45 000 M2 of working spaces, about 60 settled professional structures, 400 persons working daily, 1000 present artists every year, 30000 hours of training and 109000 visitors and public in the year. Visiting Marseille without stopping there would be a shame.
